Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
Luke 12:53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Jesus indicated that one (of many) signs of the end times or the end of the age grace would be that love for one another would grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” This can be interpreted that lawlessness and violence shall abound, including at the civil level.
2020 Just Keeps Rolling Along with the ‘Increasing Distress of Nations and Lawlessness’; Over 300 (6×5) rioters charged with crimes committed during BLM protests
The Department of Justice announced that the charges include attempted murder, assaulting a police officer, burglary, and damaging federal property.

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 25, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – More than 300 rioters in 29 states and Washington, D.C. have been charged for committing crimes “under the guise of peaceful demonstrations” since late May, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Thursday.
“Violent opportunists have exploited these demonstrations in various ways,” the DOJ said in a press release regarding the charges.
The DOJ stated that as of Thursday, of the 94 U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, more than 40 have filed “federal charges alleging crimes.”The charges incurred by rioters are vast and include attempted murder, assaulting a law enforcement officer, burglary of a federally-licensed firearms dealer, arson, damaging federal property, malicious destruction of property using fire or explosives, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, unlawful possession of a destructive device, inciting a riot, and felony civil disorder, along with others.
The DOJ said that many federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies across the nation, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the FBI, and various U.S. Attorney’s offices, have investigated the cases.
The charges stem from violent protests mostly aligned with the group Black Lives Matter (BLM) that have rocked the United States in various cities since late May after a Minnesota man, George Floyd, was killed by a white police officer.
The DOJ said that around 30 people have been charged with “offenses related to civil disorder,” 80 regarding arson and explosive related offenses, 35 with charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer, and others for “burglary and carjacking.”
“Several of these charges carry significant maximum prison sentences. For example, felony assault of a federal officer with a dangerous weapon is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Arson is punishable by up to 20 years in prison with a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison,” the DOJ press release stated.
Many of the crimes committed by rioters are related to damage to private businesses and both private and public property.
In July, President Donald Trump called the protesters “sick and deranged Anarchists & Agitators.” Trump then said that law enforcement could easily control the protestors, but they “would destroy our American cities, and worse, if Sleepy Joe Biden, the puppet of the Left, ever won.”
The DOJ gave an example of one crime that took place outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. involving a man who “suffered severe burns” after being “engulfed in flames” when he “poured a liquid from a gas can on to three U.S. Supreme Court Police vehicles.”
On Monday, the DOJ called out the Democrat-run cities of New York, Portland, and Seattle for allowing anarchy to reign, having permitted “violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities.”
In early September, Trump issued a memorandum that asked the DOJ to review “Funding to State and Local Government Recipients That Are Permitting Anarchy, Violence, and Destruction in American Cities.”
The ATF is urging people to report suspected arson or explosive crimes committed that are “associated with the recent unrest.”
Individuals can call 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), email ATFTips@atf.gov, or submit information anonymously via ReportIt.com.
Additionally, the FBI is asking that if you know a person “who may have incited or promoted violence of any kind” to call the tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at FBI.gov/violence.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
